Although it may be shocking to learn that you have a serious disease, trust me, your body isn’t surprised.
Because disease doesn't just suddenly appear out of nowhere--instead it's created over time.
Most disease typically goes through five distinct stages before it has you medicated, flat on your back and/or on the operating table.
And paying attention to your body and recognizing the stages of disease can truly make the difference between life and death.
The 5 stages of disease
Stage 1: The acute phase
In stage 1, your body is challenged in some way. You might be under stress, eating junk food, drinking too much alcohol or not getting enough sleep.
Your immune system is likely compromised, and you get a cold, virus or infection.
Stage 1 symptoms tend to be of high intensity and short duration, like an upset stomach, sore throat, fever, congestion or headache.
Drugs are not necessarily needed. Usually the symptoms are a reflection of your body's efforts to make itself better.
During this stage it's crucial to provide immune support with things like rest, vitamin C, antioxidants, probiotics and nutritious foods.
But if you instead ignore the problem, mask it with over-the-counter remedies or your body can't adequately heal from the acute illness, it can progress into...
Stage 2: The sub-acute phase
In this phase, symptoms are more intermittent and medium intensity. Complaints like headaches, back pain, muscle aches and fatigue pop up.
Immune support measures like rest and a diet of real foods are even more important in this stage, since illness is taking greater hold and beginning to weaken your body.
Unfortunately, what happens is most people in stage 2 simply take medications like pain relievers or muscle relaxers to alleviate the symptoms as they occur, or rely on coffee or 5-hour energy drinks to keep going.
And if this continues long enough, you can move on to...
Stage 3: The chronic phase
The effects of an unresolved sub-acute condition may go deeper into your body, further weaken your immune system and progress into a chronic condition.
In the chronic stage, inflammation begins brewing, and your tissues, organs and bodily systems actually begin to degenerate.
Although chronic symptoms may be less intense, they're usually present most or all of the time. Since inflammation is seeping deeper into your body and affecting its systems, physical impairments may begin to appear.
Your immune system is seriously challenged at this point and absolutely cannot provide the disease-protection support that it should.
Unfortunately, some people ignore what is now an air horn being blown by your body, and instead just use drugs as well as coffee, sugar or alcohol to get through their day.
But those "fixes" make the immune system even MORE weak and your problem MUCH bigger.
And that is the perfect invitation for...
Stage 4: The degenerative phase
At this stage your tissues are breaking down. Your body is so challenged that it's chopping away at its own minerals from your muscles and bones.
Your cells die and don't regenerate as quickly as they should. This can mean anything from digestive problems to slow healing to weakness and fatigue.
You may begin having problems with your hormones and nervous system. Plus your body's detoxification efforts begin breaking down, which means toxins are now entering your bloodstream, making you even sicker.
Musculoskeletal problems can arise such as ruptured discs, bone loss and joint problems. Plus your immune system is so weak and inflammation so strong that you’re more susceptible to things like atherosclerosis, arthritis and autoimmune conditions.
At stage 4, a substantial overhaul of diet and lifestyle is vital. Your body needs serious nutrients, your immune system is waving the white flag of defeat and you're now playing with fire.
But sadly, many people who are in stage 4 merely rely on stronger and stronger medications.
And if the degenerative process going on inside of them is not addressed, unfortunately they may reach the final stage...
Stage 5: This disabling phase
The final stage of disease is the disabling phase. Extensive damage has occurred to your body's organs and tissues to the extent that you can't adequately function.
You may have trouble walking or moving around or sitting for long periods. It may be a major chore just to get up in the morning.
Perhaps you can't do your job, so you go on disability or maybe even totally lose your income.
The damage may be permanent, or only partially reversible at this stage.
Stage 5 includes serious diseases such as heart disease, cancer, arthritis, dementia and osteoporosis.
At this point, better nutrition and immune strengthening can help improve your quality of life and reverse whatever CAN be reversed, but it's typically a long process and the prognosis isn't always rosy.
Disabling conditions frequently progress to death.
You can make a difference!
The good news here is that you can help make a difference in your health at ANY stage!
Even in the most serious stage 5, you can quite possibly help reverse some of the damage, feel better and perhaps add years to your life by putting into place the…
3 major defenses against disease
1- Get the nutrients your body desperately needs
The single most disease-preventing, health-enhancing and life-saving factor is A HEALTHY, NUTRITIOUS DIET OF REAL FOODS.
You must eat the foods that give your body the nutrients it needs to maintain health and fight off sickness, as well as encourage sound digestion to be able to assimilate those crucial nutrients and properly eliminate wastes.
And that is what you will learn to do when you use the Great Taste No Pain system.
Great Taste No Pain will not only give you a collection of scrumptious, good-for-you recipes that you’ll love, but it will also teach you the few simple principles of the dietary science of food combining to make your meals less taxing on your body and support better digestion.
When your body is armed with the nutrients it needs, it can better heal itself and stop the cycle of disease!
Plus when your digestion is efficient, you can eliminate toxins, viruses and other pathogens much easier, and help prevent them from taking hold of you.
2- Support your immune system with a high-quality probiotic
Although your immune system is all through your body, the vast majority of it resides in your intestinal tract.
So it’s crucial to have a healthy intestinal environment to help support proper immune function…and probiotics get the gold star when it comes to intestinal health!
Nothing helps support gut health better than a daily dose of the same friendly bacteria that are so crucial to intestinal and immune health.
And Super Shield multi-strain probiotic formula is your ticket for a complete, well-rounded probiotic.
Super Shield contains 13 strains of the world's most potent, effective beneficial bacteria found in the human digestive tract. These good guys line the walls of your intestines like an army, ready to fight off dangerous invaders.
Plus Super Shield also helps encourage sound digestion and more regular BMs—which can mean that gas, bloating and constipation may become a thing of the past!
3- Get regular exercise
There’s no getting around it—if you want to live a disease-free life you MUST get regular exercise.
Here are some of the impressive benefits you can enjoy from moving in ways other than from the couch to the refrigerator and back during commercials:
- Weight management: Regular exercise helps to increase muscle mass and decrease body fat.
- High blood pressure prevention: Physical activity strengthens the heart and lungs which can help control and reduce blood pressure.
- Decreased cardiovascular risk: Physical activity strengthens heart muscles, lowers resting heart rate and improves blood lipids (decreasing triglycerides and LDL and increases HDL).
- Reduced cancer risk: Being overweight increases a person's risk of cancer, so physical activity can help reduce cancer risk by reducing weight.
- Decreased back pain: Exercise can increase muscle strength, endurance, flexibility and posture, all of which can help prevent back injuries and alleviate back pain.
- Lower risk of diabetes: Regular physical activity can lead to decreases in blood glucose, insulin resistance and other health complications associated with Type 2 diabetes.
- Optimized bone mass: Weight-bearing physical activity can encourage bone formation and slow the progression of bone loss.
- Enhanced sleep quality: Regular exercise is a natural stress reducer, can help improve mood and reduce depression and anxiety, and encourage more restful sleep.
Stop the excuses! If you have time to watch TV, update your Facebook status or read gossip magazines, you have time to exercise.
Get your doctor’s OK and get going.
